Hello to all my dear readers and friends. I have missed you all and missed following your postings and comments. I hope to be resuming with this blog now, with a greater emphasis on book reviews and bookish things. I would like to thank you all again for your kind and touching words of condolences. This has been even harder than I could imagine and the pain continues, made worse by the unbelievable bureaucracy and costs that accompany such an event.
My life is currently suspended between the UK and South Africa and I'm not sure when it will return to normal. I have found some comfort in reading and hope to have some reviews up in due course. I have received a few review copies and would like to thank the publishers for their generosity. I shall try to read these and review them as soon as I can.
I have decided to give the blog a makeover and simplify things. Although I liked the design of the previous incarnation, it wasn't suitable for all monitor resolutions. I hope that the current style does the job and conveys a little warmth and simplicity.
I look forward to hearing from you all again and to dip in and out of your comments and blog postings.
A joyful Spring to those of you in the South and a mellow Autumn/Fall to those in the North. Whatever the hemisphere, the latter part of the year holds a bounty of new publications. Happy reading!
